Malice

Malice needs nothing to live on; it can feed on itself.  A contentious spirit will find something to quarrel about.  A faultfinder will find occasion to accuse a Christian even if his life is as chaste as an icicle and pure as snow.  A man of ill will does not hesitate to attack, even if the object of his hatred be a prophet or the very Son of God Himself.  If John comes fasting, he says he has a devil; if Christ comes eating and drinking, he says He is a winebibber and a glutton.  Good men are made to appear evil by the simple trick of dredging up from his own heart the evil that is there and attributing it to them.
